For medium and long-haired gals, nothing's better than a ponytail for beating the summer heat. Getting that hair up and off your neck keeps you cool, and it's a classic look that never goes out of style. That being said, why not change it up a little for the upcoming season? We've found a great gallery of fresh ponytail ideas at Elle.com. Here are a few: Constant trendsetter Rihanna wears a super-full, high ponytail with tons of volume. Great for gals with thick, wavy hair. Getty images Olivia Wilde sports a trendy bubble ponytail. Make a ponytail, then add elastics in regular intervals down to the last few inches. Then pull/puff out the hair between the elastics. If you don't have enough length, consider adding some clip- or tape-in extensions. Easy, stylish, and a little different.
